Dawg Dash Seattle
The Seattle UW Dawg Dash has been a UW tradition since 1985. It's a very popular annual event that brings out thousands of participants and helps support student scholorships and the alumni association.
Presented by the UW Alumni Association, this 10k run and 5k walk/run is part of the University's annual homecoming celebration, and gives runners an opportunity to run through UW's Seattle campus! There's a free Husky Pups run for children 10 and under, and a post race party at Red Square.
Dog lovers take note, your furry friends are welcome at this race so bring them out!
The Dawg Dash course is a simple and straightforward loop through the UW Seattle Campus. The 5k route stays mainly on campus, the 10k route extends out of the University then loops back to join the end of the 5k route. There aren't any major surprises/hills on either the 5k or 10k.
